If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Was working then made a raspi noise now nothing works


Sounds like you might have a problem with metal in the oven. Look inside the oven including the "ceiling" and see if the finish has worn off, leaving bare metal. If so, wash that area thoroughly, dry, sand lightly. Then apply some appliance paint that comes in tiny bottles and costs about $4.

Waveguide Cover

If the microwave is sparking or arcing the waveguide cover might be damaged and shorting out. Try removing the waveguide cover and see if the problem goes away. If there are any damaged spots in the microwave ceiling or sidewalls, repair them and paint them with microwave oven paint. Replace the waveguide cover if it is burnt or if it will not stay in place.

Microwave Oven Paint

If the microwave is sparking or arcing on the side walls the paint might have chipped causing pitting in the metal oven wall. Use microwave safe paint to touch up any bare metal spots.





Rack Support

If the microwave is sparking or arcing near one of the rack supports, remove the support, repaint any bare metal, install a new support.

You can apply some ceramic paint on to the worn out portion so as the bare metal is not visible .
Please check up with the paint store for the paint non conductive ceramic paints which can be coated using brush or a spray gun.

Go and talk to them, it's obviously not fit for purpose and in the circumstances they should replace it.

They offer a years guarantee and that's what you have had but you also have rights under the sale of goods act. for the item to be merchantable quality which it is not.
Ask to see the manager, be polite and firm.
good luck

The paint is coming off the inside of my ge microwave. is it safe to use?


No it is not safe! the white paint is a special type designed for microwave ovens that prevents arcing from the magnetron, because when you get down to bare metal it will cause problems. I would try and contact the GE manufacture or appliance repairman to see if he has the paint available for this kind of work.

Whirlpool gold GT4175SPS-2 inside door paint is flaking and revealing metal. Is it safe to use?


Hi,

Scratches, flaking and bare spots are fairly common, but should be addressed as soon as they arise so the corrosion will not spread and arcing does not occur.

Unplug the power cord first.

Take some mild sanding cloth or scotchbright and clean the bare and rusted areas in the microwave. Use appliance touch up paint to re-coat the surface. You can find the touch up at most anywhere that sells appliances, it comes in a plastic bottle similar in appearance to fingernail polish, yes it does have a brush inside.

Let it dry per the instructions on the bottle or 24 hours if not specified.

COATING ON INSIDE OF MICROWAVE HAS STARTED TO COME OFF, EXPOSING UNDERNEATH SURFACE, IS IT STILL SAFE TO USE AND EAT FOOD COOKED IN IT?


Nothing special in there. As long as the paint is not flaking into the food you are ok, Be aware that bare metal could begin to arc. There is special microwave paint available but it will not match and look bad unless you redo the entire interior.
